Nothing's first ever smartphone, the Nothing Phone 1, is launching in July, and now we know what it will look like.
Just like the earbuds, the phone has transparent elements. It's hard to tell whether they're real or fake, but if we're really seeing through the (presumably glass) back cover of the phone, the image shared by Nothing reveals a couple of details about the phone: it's going to have a dual rear camera and wireless charging.
We also know that the device will be powered a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and run on a modified version of Android, but no other details have been officially revealed. Rumors say it'll have a 6.55-inch OLED display with a 1,080x2400 pixel resolution and no visible "chin" on the bottom. Same source says the phone will have a flat (think iPhone-like) design, which looks accurate from what we can see in Nothing's picture above.
The see-through elements have been tried before. Xiaomi had a partially fake see-through back on its Mi 8 Explorer Edition, and HTC did something similar with its Exodus 1 smartphone. It's a cool look that hasn't been too overdone in the industry, and Nothing is obviously leaning on it as a key part of its brand.
The launch is on July 12, though we're quite certain there will be more teasers and leaks before that date.Continue Reading
